See The Moment That Should Have Been In Zack Snyder's Watchmen

The infamous cut scene that could have saved Zack Snyder's Watchmen movie from being labeled "beautiful but soulless" has been released online. Featuring the original Nite Owl and Sally Jupiter, this intense moment deserved a place in the theatrical cut.

It just breaks my heart that they didn't include the death of Hollis Mason in the original film. Not only does it display more of the beautiful villain costumes from the previous Watchmen concept art, but Snyder's decision to film Mason's last minutes as the Nite Owl fighting off the Top Knots with flashes of past supervillain enemies is brilliant.


It's a sad moment that demonstrates just how careless and cold humanity has become in regards to human life. It's violent and brutal, and underscores the movie's themes perfectly. I'm actually surprised there wasn't more blood, but it's a great scene and it while it's not in the original, it will be on the Watchmen: Director's Cut out on Blu-Ray July 21.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure the director's cut will be the version we all wanted it to be, anyway. I blame studio meddling to cram in more showings.

Still, I'll be waiting until x-mas to get the sooper-ultra-mega-deluxe edition.
